While I'd like to paint myself as an original Melvins hipster from the 80's, this was the first "new" album the band made after I discovered them. This record is a brutal trifecta of savage rock, performance art and experimental poetry all at the same time. In short, this record is an essential selection for #psychickarate dojo antics.
Favorite track: Foaming.
Bits of it remind me of Soundgarden, KISS and the Reverend Horton Heat. The Melvins adopted a more "normal" approach to songwriting, it seems, with pentatonic chord progressions and a great deal of harmonized King Buzzo vocals. It's not quite as good as "Pigs of the Roman Empire" or "(A) Senile Animal," but it's boatloads of fun nonetheless!
Favorite track: The Anti-Vermin Seed.
